its been many years since ive done the GL tour-well before my brewing days so excited to go back now.

I was lucky to be in Germany for almost 5-years and sample beers and tour some of the many breweries there. I also in 2011 got to tour Guinness, and then made it to Jameson for a private reserve tasting and tour....I was sufficiently ripped by 11am that day.

Looking ahead now to planning a trip back to Germany for an extensive brewery tour trip-with a slightly different perspective of a homebrewer.

Used to enjoy that brewery quite a bit when I lived in Painesville.

Ok, so lets hear about the Brew School. Aside from drinking their killer brews, what did it consist of ? Might have mentioned, forest green with envy.   ;)
